TVS 12C (640)

The TVS 12C (640) is designed for tripod mounting as well as handheld use. This thermal imaging monocular is well suited to a variety of tactical, law enforcement, search and rescue, and industrial applications. The device utilizes passive infrared sensing technology allowing users to detect extremely small differences in the temperature of objects, people and other heat sources within the field of view.

Unlike traditional night vision devices, the TVS 12C (640) can be operated 24 hours a day, in daytime and at night, even in the total darkness of an enclosed space. The device can also see through smoke, fog and other obscurants. The unit features “black hot”,“white hot”, and “sepia” image polarity and can also be connected to external display devices allowing other parties to view the observed image in real time.
